In Matthew 25 Jesus instructs us to care for those that are in need. He says "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." At First CRC, we take this charge seriously. We are providing opportunities for members to learn more about a variety of needs and are challenging them to get involved!
As we consider all the needs of this world, we try to find a good balance between local opportunities and well as needs that exist on the other side of the globe. Here are some of the needs that we are addressing at this time.
